Backup + has been made with the aim of being a complete backup and app manipulation program. It is in very early stages of it's development and is for now considered to be an alpha.

HELP WITH TRANSLATIONS, CLICK HERE.


Backup +

Right now, it is one of the very few apps which supports backups on Android L even with SELinux set to enforcing.

Can backup apps without data for non-rooted devices.

Bugs are to be expected and as an early adapter you are requested to report crashes and force-closes using the built-in bug reporter which appears when the app crashes. You can also mail me with your feature requests, suggestions and ideas. Right now it only has the basic app backup and restore functionality, but expect this app to mature with time.

Quote:


Just for the sake of clarity regarding the pro version, this app will have multiple in-app purchases for each premium feature, and not just a single pro key. This will allow you to buy just the features you need and avoid paying for the features you don't want. The total worth of all the in-app purchases will still be less than/equal to the pro keys of other backup solutions. For now, the only premium feature is "SYSTEM APPS", which allows you to backup and manipulate system apps, future items will be cloud backup and so on.


Features-

- One click batch Backup/Restore
- Multiple backups
- Freeze/ Unfreeze apps
- Simple easy to use interface
- Three backup modes (App only, Data only, App+data)
- App backup in non - rooted devices
- Dark/Light themes
- Multiple app manipulation options
- More to come

Get it from play store

I like the look and feel of the app considering it's only in alpha stage. One bug I have is that anytime I exit the app with the back button and open it again, it checks for root. Not a big deal but a bug nonetheless. Keep up the good work.

My device is a Nexus 5.

@boomer8403 Thank you for your comment. It will definitely be fixed in the next release, I have a lot of good things planned for this app, so stay tuned.

I see it lists 1 click backup/restore, so on restore does that mean it will do like a batch restore of apps without prompting for each app to install them? And if so will that feature work if your not rooted?

I guess batch restore is limited to root only

Yes, sorry about that,batch restore is available only to rooted users, for non rooted devices, you have to long press on each app and select install.

@gh0stslayer

First off, fantastic app, it's really nice! I have a question for you though, are you considering adding in the ability to have scheduled backups at some point?
